Tyler Thompson, american beats
Tyler Thomson presents WMD
For my performance at the evening program, I will be doing an improvised acid-house/techno set using a eurorack system. The drums will consist of the Hexinverter Mutant line. I will use the WMD Performance Mixer to cue up new sequences between two voices and juggle between them. I will also use the aux and cue outs for FX sends and return them to the two stereo channels on the mixer.
In Hall 1, various Artists, Musicians and Developers will present short concert/presentations up to 20 minutes long. During the presentations, other than performances, presenters will explain the technology or instruments used and answer questions. A maximum of one half of the time (10 minutes) will be for speaking or explanations.
The Gespraechskonzerte will also be presented over video monitors and projections so one can view the very finely detailed products and technical usage. The edited recordings of these events will also be available online for future use.
The term and concept of Gespraechskonzerte or "Discussion Concert" was coined by the late German Physicist and pioneer of electronic music, Oskar Sala. He used this phrase at times when he would perform on the Trautonium with discussion to follow the concert.
